A complete lead weight or spindle whorl of uncertain date. The object is bi-conical with a flat based and domed top. A perforation runs through the centre. All surfaces appear to be undecorated. The metal is worn and creamy-brown in colour. The object is 24.6 mm in diameter, 11.3mm thick and weighs 36.1g. The perforation is 9.6mm in diameter. Lead spindle whorls and weights were commonly used from the Iron Age through to the post-medieval period and are difficult to date with any certainty without supporting archaeological context. The function of such objects is also difficult …

Lead weight. Cast oval lightly plano-convex object of lentoid form with a central longitudinal ridge on its convex side. The object is nicked at one end; the finder kindly suggests the loss of a loop from this site, though the provision would have been slight to enable the secure suspension of the object. Lightly patinated. The mass might suggest this to represent three units of 4.43gms, as used in the Viking 'kingdom' of York and Dublin for silver bullion transactions, or one half of an ore/ora, the contemporary [underweight equivalent of the] ounce. However, when multiples of postula…

Lead probable weight. Cast oval flat-based weight with near-vertical sides and traces of a rib passing up its sides and across its top along the long axis, though dented on one side. The sunken base may suggest this was made in an open mould. Patinated. The present mass is almost exactly one averdepois ounce. This might commend a high medieval or early post-medieval date, though the form also resembles that of early medieval game pieces. Suggested date: Late Medieval, 1350-1500. Length: 20mm, Height: 13.9mm, Width: 15.5mm, Weight: 28.29gms

Lead weight, Cast plano-convex weight with a central moulded aperture of diameter 9.2mm, slightly angled. A notch by the aperture on the convex side - if not the result of adventitious damage - may suggest the provision of a tying notch, as would be used to attach a weight to a fishing line. Patinated. Suggested date: Medieval, 1200-1500. Diameter: 29.2mm, Thickness (at lipped edge of hole): 12.5mm, Weight: 31.69gms

Lead weight. Cast plano-convex weight with a tapered moulded aperture of diameter 8.5-10.5mm, slightly angled. A deep notch on one side of the hole and a less well defined nick opposite it may represent tying notches, as would be used to attach a weight to a fishing line. Patinated. Suggested date: Medieval, 1200-1500. Diameter: 23.1mm, Thickness: 7.9mm, Weight: 14.24gms

A complete post-medieval copper alloy trade weight of the Georgian period (1714-1820). The weight is disc-shaped and circular in plan and is uni-faced. The reverse is flat and plain although slightly abraded. The front has a circumferential ridge around the outer edge so that the centre of the weight is inset. Stamped in this depression is a G(E) surmounted with a small crown. Two concentric lines appear to be incised through the outer edges of the letters and the lower part of the crown. This type of trade weight is discussed in Biggs (1993, 54) where it states that the marking…

A lead alloy object, possibly a weight, of uncertain date (Roman to post-medieval AD43-1800). The weight is rectangular in shape with sloping edges.

A perforated conical shaped weight of uncertain date, probably from the Medieval to post-Medieval period, although a Roman date is also possible. The weight is conical in shape with an off-centre longitudinal perforation of 5.18mm at the top and 5.99mm at the base. The base of the weight is slightly convex with an irregular rim. The surface of the weight is pitted and scarred; patination of the lead suggests that this is old damage. The patina is a buff/cream colour with occasional grey flecks.

A cast lead alloy weight dating from the Roman to the Post-Medieval period, (AD 43-1700). The object is circular in plan. The upper face is stamped with the numerals VIII. The lower surface has been recently damaged, possibly due to the plough but is undecorated. The object has a mid-grey patina. Lead weights are common throughout the medieval and post-medieval period. The patina and condition of this weight suggests that a later date is more likely. Dimensions: 45mm in diameter, 11mm thick, 221g. Biggs, N. & Withers, P. (2000) note that weights of this type with numerals are co…

A cast lead or lead-alloy conical standing or balance weight, probably dating from the late medieval to post-medieval period (AD1400-1600). The weight is conical in shape with a circular base tapering to the apex which is broken. It is 26.33mm tall. There are off-centre, possibly drilled, almost circular apertures at top and base measuring 6.50mm: deposits appear to be blocking the hole which would extend through the weight. The weight has smooth sides but a chip is missing at one side near the top, probably old damage. The base of the weight is slightly convex from a flat rim and …

A lead alloy spindle whorl of medieval to post-medieval date. The object is circular in plan and bi-conical. In the centre of the object is a circular perforation with an internal diameter of 10.5mm. The weight appears to be undecorated although it may have worn off. The spindle whorl has a light grey patina and is dark grey in places. Similar examples of spindle whorls have reportedly been found in contexts dated from the Roman through to the Post-Medieval period although the majority are typically dated broadly to the medieval period c.1100-1500. The diameter is 24mm and the weig…

A complete lead or lead alloy shield shaped trade weight of the Medieval to Post Medieval period, dating from AD 1380 to AD 1600.
